This workshop provides an overview of Bridges concepts. Bridges is not a program but a language and a set of ideas and tools that can be applied locally to improve outcomes for individuals, institutions and communities. Bridges’ methodology is founded on the paradigm that everyone is a problem solver and a potential innovator. Audiences are encouraged to innovate at three levels—individual, institutional, and community.
